We love helping people smile

We're a friendly, locally-owned orthodontic practice with two specialist orthodontists: Dr Russell Lovatt and Dr Chrissy Bailey.

We can't wait to give you and your loved ones something to smile about.

Friendly and family-oriented

Our practice is practitioner-owned and operated by the practitioners who provide you with treatment. We are fortunate to have a team of well-trained, compassionate, and experienced staff committed to providing the very best in care.

Treatment tailored to you

There is no "one size fits all" method for treating your smile. It depends on the smile you have, and the smile you want.

We have expertise in all major methods and will tailor an approach to your bite and what you want to achieve, rather than trying to force a single tool that isn't suitable for your bite and your goals.

State-of-the-art treatment

We use the latest technologies and materials to help you get the best smile, in the fastest and most efficient way we can.

Specialist orthodontists

Dr Russell Lovatt and Dr Christine Bailey have years of specialist training and experience in the field of orthodontics. They are proud members of the New Zealand Association of Orthodontists (NZAO) and the New Zealand Dental Association (NZDA).

Finance that suits

You can pay up-front, via credit card, or in monthly installments.
